French Onion Dip

I know NO ONE will admit to liking this but when I was growing up, we put french onion soup mix into a pint of sour cream and called it chip dip!
Sometimes when you grow up with something, you crave it when you get older, just a little, once in a while.
I wanted to make some and had no french onion soup mix, so I chopped onions very small and mixed in some marmite, and it is almost PERFECT!

I met a guy once that liked that french onion soup mix added to half sour cream and half cream cheese. That was good as well with chips.

Anyone else? ~Bliss

Hey--I love this stuff. A nice Lay's chip with French onion dip made with Lipton's onion soup mix--heaven! I also love the Knorr's vegetable soup mixes mixed with sour cream for a dip for a veggie platter. Then there's Velveeta and ro-tel dip, and ro-tel/Velveeta/Italian sausage dip with Frito scoops......Yum!

Here is Onion Dip I make -- A friend had it at a party and I love it -- taste best after it has been in fridge for a few hours.

Onion Dip
Ingredients
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups diced onions
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sour cream
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
Directions
In a saute pan over medium heat add oil, heat and add onions and salt.
Cook the onions until they are caramelized, about 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Mix the rest of the ingredients, and then add the cooled onions.
Refrigerate and stir again before serving.

I just go for the regular stuff:
1 pkg Lipton Onion Soup Mix/Dip
1 16 oz container Sour Cream

Right off the back of the box.

The stuff is addictive. If I make it, I won't stop until it's gone.

MMMMMMMMMMMM! The only addition I make is a splash of worcestershire sauce. I could (and have) eaten this stuff with a spoon. Why do you suppose it tastes so good?

I love that as well! I grew up on it or Dean's French Onion chip dip When I was a kid, I played a game called Dungeons & Dragons (yes I'm a nerd at heart ... don't look like one, but I still think like one), and we would get together in groups of about 6-8 people and each would bring snacks and pop, and Dean's was a big favorite
